Geek pop quiz: Random windows 7 install question

UPDATE: Found a solution here, seems to be a asus bug.

During one of the re-boots, I realized that my boot order had changed. I saw "UEFI Sony Optical", so I went into the CD-DVD Drive options and now saw "Sony Optical", listed just under "UEFI Sony Optical". All I did was change the drive in the #1 Boot Order field to "Sony Optical", hit F10 to "Save and Reboot".

I am installing windows 7 on a new machine, no stop, it needs to be windows 7, you know why, because I have a free copy of SAS which I need to run for my degree, and its a windows version, so yeah, windows 7 is a hard limit.

So put my CD in, I can’t install on that drive it is MBR partitioned EFI systems can only be installed on GPT disks, fine, grab GParted and repartition the disk, get a error that windows can’t be installed on a GPT it needs a MBR disk.

I have a 64GB SSD and a I TB HDD

WTF, what am I missing? Also posted on Dreamwidth You should consider joining dream width, they seem less evil
